17th World Congress on Controversies in Obestetrics, Gynecology and Infertility

  • Conference Call
  • The 17th World Congress on Controversies in Obstetrics, Gynecology & Infertility (COGI) will take place November 8-11, 2012 in Lisbon, Portugal. COGI in Europe has already positioned itself amongst the foremost scientific events in Gynecology. Only a few congresses bring together groups of interdisciplinary experts that deal with current clinical controversies throughout the Ob/Gyn and infertility discipline. As stated by one of the participants, “You’ll probably have to travel to half a dozen congresses to get what you get at COGI.”

    In 2011, COGI Paris broke all its previous records with over 2,200 participants, more than 700 abstracts, one third of which were by young scientists, numerous debates, workshops, a da-Vinci robot demonstration, a position paper to be published soon on the “use of SERM’s in osteoporosis” and support from 18 leading pharmaceutical and medical equipment companies.

    COGI Lisbon is a joint Congress with the Portuguese Federation of Obstetrics & Gynecology (FSPOG) who are also planning a pre-congress workshop for Portuguese speaking participants.
